From Rome Reports:
During the Sunday Angelus, Benedict XVI reflected on the story of Jesus forcing merchants away from the Temple. A strong move, which the pope said was not to be viewed as in terms of politics.
â€œIt’s impossible to consider a violent Jesus: violence is contrary to God’s Kingdom, it’s an instrument of the Antichrist. Violence does not help humanity, it dehumanizes it.â€
Also during the Angelus, the pope asked for the help of the international community in giving aid to Madagascar, where at least 72 people have died and 70,000 have lost their homes because of the tropical storm ‘Irina’.
